The Nigerian Anti-Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) says it is investigating a man named Lawalli Bala, who was accused of sodomizing 12 children in Sokoto State.
It claimed that the 30-year-old had spent about five years doing the same thing with the little children.

The zonal commander of NAPTIP, Sokoto, Kebbi and Zamfara state commissions, Mitika Mafa-Ali, said the man was traced to a nightclub in Rikina village of Dange / Shuni Local Government Area.

He said as long as their investigation confirmed that the accused had committed homosexual acts with the children, they would definitely take him to court and prosecute him before a judge.

Mitika Mafa-Ali said their agency had already invited the parents of the suspects, the man who had committed homosexual acts with the children to receive information from them.

He however said the children were in good health, as they needed to be taken to a hospital for tests, because “such people if they have HIV, the children can get infected.”

He further stated “We will try here at our office to see that these children are completely healthy, before we tell the parents to take them home.”

Earlier, it was reported that the Sokoto State Hizb ut-Tahrir had received information about the incident and where it had arrested the man and gathered the children allegedly involved in the incident.

The children are between the ages of eight to fourteen years, some of them attending primary school, and some attending Islamic schools, as Mafa-Ali tells.

The officer said the suspect confessed to his staff that he had committed the crime, and according to the suspect the incident was the work of the devil.
